It's that word again.

I followed some of the links in the article and I came across this one:


One phrase that caught my eye was this:

"James Rutherford of Serco said: "The equipment we use for Electronic Monitoring is proven to be robust and reliable."

It seems as if the Post Office got the memo as it is exactly the same phrase they use to describe their Horizon system.

In Serco's case it does not seem to have been very "robust" and looking at the trial of the Post Office's system just ended neither does Horizon.

Oh, one final thought. The Post Office refers to itself as "Post Office" and that really irritates me. Have they never heard of the definite article?
